Worm Set to Attack Jan. 6 – Are You Ready?

The Sober worm we talked about earlier will possibly start clogging email inboxes on January 6 or even January 5.

If you aren’t running anti-virus software (huh?) or haven’t updated your definitions file recently, you’ll want to so in the next day or so. If not, you could be one of the computers spreading more Nazi propoganda.

So where can you scan your computer for free? Here are a few ideas:

http://us.mcafee.com/root/mfs/default.asp

http://www.pandasoftware.com/products/ActiveScan.htm

These services will allow you to scan for free, but you’ll probably have to pay a small fee to remove anything they find. In either case, it’s best to know if you’re clean (or not).

I started using computers in 1978 on the Apple II and was first online (using my “high-speed” 1200 baud modem) in 1989. I’ve managed web sites for several Fortune 500 companies and for internet start-ups. Working for one of those start-ups is what brought me into the world of credit. I was part of the the executive team that ran QSpace, the first company to offer credit reports over the internet.
